Nishinoomote Ferry Port

What is there to do in Nishinoomote?

The combination of stunning mountainside and unique rock formations, amongst a long stretch of golden sands, make the Urada Beach such a highly regarded attraction. The difficulty doesn’t come from deciding whether to visit, it’s when to visit: in the summer the warm weather is an added bonus, whereas in the colder months the beach often resembles a deserted, tranquil haven. Kishigasaki Beach is also a popular destination; beautiful greenery surrounds the sands creating a tropical feel.

If beaches aren’t particularly desirable, there is a number of historical and cultural sites. Akaogijo Culture and Traditional Museum Gessotei and the Akaogi Castle Ruins are well worth visiting; the ruins are a fascinating insight into the historical architecture belonging to the city. After a day of sightseeing or sunbathing, head to the abundance of restaurants, typically serving seafood fresh from the water as the speciality.

How do visitors get around Nishinoomote?

The city is relatively small so it is possible to cover much of it by foot, alternatively, there are several taxis readily available.
